Editorial review:

This Shangri-La does not meet the standards other Shangri-La locations in Asia. However, it has recently been renovated and is in the middle of the Rocks District which means it is a great location for wandering around and exploring. The service is average, but the rooms are a good size, and the views of Harbour Bridge and the Opera House are amazing especially from the bar and restaurant on the 36th floor.

Overview

The deluxe Shangri-La Hotel Sydney is a 5-star property set next to Bondi Beach, Museum of Sydney and Sydney Olympic Park featuring a steam room, a golf course and a beauty shop. Since 1992 the hotel has been hosting guests in a 36-story ancient building.

    We really enjoyed the staff that worked there. They were all very welcoming, nice & friendly. The bed was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept in. The view of the Harbour Bridge & Opera House was exquisite!

    We didn't like the fact that the drawer kept opening, and the desk chair was damaged.

  • Couple

    The room and service was fantastic with polite and helpful staff

    I think it needs to clearly state on the internet regarding accessibility to the city for people wishing to access it without using transport. The steep hill for a person with a diability is restrictive.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    The hotel room was very comfortable and the fabulous king size bed was pure heaven. The bathroom was very well appointed and luxurious. The location of the hotel was perfect overlooking the harbour and had easy access to downtown Sydney, Circular Quay and all the bars and restaurants around the Rocks. Had a wonderful stay here and would definitely come back.

    Although there were six lifts, it seemed to take forever to get one no matter what time of day or night. Not sure they were all in working order.

  • Older travelers

    The room was very big. The view was magnificent and the staff were fantastic, nothing was a problem to them. By far the best hotel I have ever stayed in worldwide.

    The hotel is in a very good location, close to Sydney harbour bridge and opera house, also very close to ferries. And of course, shopping.

    Awesome views; the harbour bridge and opera house seemed to be within touching distance of our window.

    The bathroom was awesome! Such a big shower and the bath was lovely (seen as we dont have one in our home). It was a very nicely set up hotel and the way the room was decorated was lovely! For the price we paid we would stay there every weekend if we could!!!

    When we went into the room it smelt like cigarette smoke which I really do not like. And the mini bar listing is written incorrectly people could argue if they wanted to as it says 2* coca cola can $6 this wouold make any normal person think that it is $6 for the 2 cans. Other then these we loved our stay.

    The rooms were generous in size. We were glad to see that our bathroom had a bath as well as a separate shower. Staff were very helpful and courteous.

    The room we were allocated was next to a double apartment (507/508) and we had an adjoining door that was illfitting. The considerable noise of our neighbours especially at 4am spoilt our first night.If rooms such as ours is to be allocated separately, then the doors and soundproofing need attention or blocking off altogether.

    Central location, staff, view from the cocktail bar!

    AUD$84 for breakfast for 2 people was a bit steep!

    The Blu bar is amazing. My only negative comment would be that the room we had was a bit dark. It's a shame the windows are not bigger to take in the view. I had to sit on the window box to get a veiw.

    The view overlooking the harbour and opera house. Just a short downhill walk to the city centre.

    The short uphill walk back to the hotel. We probably needed the exercise!
